Archdiocese loses appeal in priest sex abuse case

Archdiocese SNAP Priests Abuse

(KTVI) – The St. Louis Archdiocese has lost an appeal in a priest sex abuse case.  A woman suing the Archdiocese wants the names of priests accused of sexual abuse over a 20-year period.

Her lawyer claims it will show the Archdiocese had a pattern of ignoring abuse allegations.  A lower court ordered the church to release the names. The Archdiocese appealed and lost.

They now plan to appeal to the Missouri Supreme Court.
